Crazy Busy-ness

Hi Ladies!!!

Wow, I have been busy, busy, busy this week already! Between school, work, and everything in-between, things get pretty hectic!

I work part-time at a Hair Salon. I love my job and very lucky to have had the opportunity to work there. About 1 year ago, my hairdresser (the nicest lady ever!) was needing some help around the place and I just happened to be in getting my hair done. So she asked me if I would be interested and of course I wanted to do it! I started right away and have had so much fun in that place over the past year. I mainly answer the phones, keep her and the other hairdressers organized, and chat it up with the clients. Working there definitely has some good perks, too…can you say free hair-do’s and nail appointments?!? OH YEA. :D

Ok, now I have a few pics from last weekend. I was at Walmart doing some grocery shopping with my Mom, when I just happened to take a peek in the girls clothing and found myself a bargain! I got 2 pairs of running shorts for $7!!! Here they are:


You like?

Then I came home and tried out a new bar:



GNU Cinnamon Raisin Bar!! I loved it! I could taste the cinnamon flavor in each and every bite. It was nice and chewy, too.

I ordered the sample pack from their website a while back and have now tried this one and the peanut butter one. So far, out of the two, I like this one better.

Now, onto today. Before my busy day of school followed by work, I had a great breakfast full of good fuel:


1/2 Pepperidge Farms whole wheat bagel with Kroger natural peanut butter and 1 orange.

On the side, I had 1/2 cup of white lovely-ness…cottage cheese:


And a mug of green tea:


I love the words on this mug :)

And that is all the food pics I have from today…I will get better at this, I promise!

Despite the busy-ness I have had going on lately, tomorrow is my last of day school this week!! We have conferences on Thursday and then Friday we are off for Good Friday. YAY! Now I will be able to focus on getting ready for my race this Saturday. The plan is to get a good run in tomorrow after school, and then on Thursday, too. Then Friday will be a rest day, since it is the day before the race. Sound like a good plan?? I can’t believe my race is at the end of THIS WEEK!!

Now I am headed off to go finish up some homework and hopefully have a little bit of time to relax before I head to bed.

Have a great night, wonderful people!


  1. Hey girl, thanks for stopping by my blog! Those running shorts are adorable, I need to buy some myself now that the weather had cleared up.

  2. Hey girl. I'm SO jealous you get all the benefits of working at a hair salon. Lucky duck! I'm glad you enjoy it :)

    Those running shorts are adorable! I might have to run my butt up the street to Walmart and get me some too! They look comfy too. I can't wait to hear about your race this weekend. Have a great night!
    Love, Meg

    p.s. I haven't tried any Gnu bars before, do they upset your stomach at all due to all that fiber in one sitting? Sometimes I find that if I eat a bar with TONS of fiber in it, I get bloated right after. Maybe I'm just wierd ;)

  3. Meg: The Gnu bars have not upset my stomach or made me bloated...but that is probably because my body is used to taking in a good amount of fiber every day. Now if my body wasn't used to very much fiber, then I could see this bar bar possibly causing problems. Hope that helps!

  4. Had to visit a site with a girl named Kristi running it. Great site. I will be sure to check in more. Love the shorts and never saw those fiber bars before.

  5. That’s so awesome that you work at a Hair Salon.. sounds like a lot of fun!!
